American Express Credit Card Airline Bonuses

October 12, 2010

American Express has two pretty good credit card offers for airline bonuses, one of which is ending soon.

American Express Premier Rewards Gold

The Premier Rewards Gold Card is offering 25,000 American Express membership rewards points for new card members.  After you charge $1000 on the card during your first three months you’ll receive the the rewards points in your AmEx membership rewards account.

You can get a free airline ticket with the points or they can be used for $250 in gift cards.  There is an annual fee for the Rewards Gold card but it is waived for the first year. This was a limited time offer that ends tomorrow, you can sign up for the bonus here.

American Express Gold Delta SkyMiles

The Gold Delta SkyMiles card is also offering a bonus for new card members.  This frequent flyer rewards card will give you 20,000 bonus miles after your first purchase.  If you have other family members you want to add to the account you can earn up to an additional 5000 rewards points for adding them.

The 25,000 rewards points can be used for $250 off an airline ticket on Delta. The annnual fee is waived for the first year and you earn one mile for every dollar spent on general purchases and two miles for every dollar spent at participating retailers and merchants.

American Express hasn’t said when this credit card offer will expire so you still have some time to sign up for this one.  You can read more about the card and the bonus here.
